Enough with the Chappelle's Show re-runs

I've always had an addictive personality. As a kid, I watched the movie Popeye with Robin Williams 52 times in one summer (hey, we had HBO and air conditioning and it was hot out) before getting sick of it. So you get the point -- if you put it on, I'll watch it.

So skip ahead 25 years and Comedy Central is totally ruining my favorite show.

I love Chappelle's show. It's the funniest non-animated show on TV, hands down. But for Christ's sakes, Comedy Central, please stop airing the re-runs every 2 hours -- you're going to ruin it for me. I can only listen to "Daaaarkness... Charlie Murphy!" and "I'm Rick James, bitch!" so many times per month before I get sick of it.

I have Season One on DVD but am having serious second thoughts about purchasing Season Two now that I have every line of every episode memorized... but looking back that didn't stop me from buying Caddyshack either.

How to Rick Roll Someone

I've noticed a lot of traffic to my blog from a post I did on Rick Roll. In particular, people are looking for how to do it. So, without further adieu, here's a quick 1, 2, 3 on "How to Rick Roll Someone."


Pick your target. This should be someone not suspecting a peculiar link, email or heads up. Works great if you're the guy/girl in the office known for sending YouTube links via IM
Grab the URL. The YouTube video is probably the easiest to snag, because the URL isn't a dead giveaway. Sites that truncate URLs like SnipURL and TinyURL are handy if you want to send folks to yougotrickrolled.com.
Pick your delivery method and send! IM, email, blog (wink!), what-have-you.


Please, feel free to get creative. Our programmers used a "Can someone test this site?" email to the office to Rick Roll the entire staff. Or better yet - send the URL along to unsuspecting family members as "Our newest family pictures!".

Another fun way is via conference or phon…

My first Facebook spam!

Well, that didn't take long. I was spammed twice today via my Facebook profile by someone named Andrea Rowe, saying that she likes my profile picture (flattery is my weak spot) and wanted to chat. She's promoting a site through one of the TinyURL-esque sites and let me know that her username is "foxy_hotty". Here's her follow up message:


hi there David, how's it going? i wanted to chat with you, but they don't have that here, whatever. if you'd like to, you can check out my other profile at http://snipurl.com/XXXXX my username's foxy_hotty. we can chat there, just dont mind the bad pics, lol. soooo, ya, see you i hope.


Yes, I edited the SnipURL ending because I refuse to give spammers free promotion or even worse, the click through. For those unaware, sites like SnipURL and TinyURL allow you to send truncated versions of URLs, which is particularly handy when you're posting URLs to your blog (formatting) or SMS-based tools like Jaiku and Twitte…
